Angry residents are due to meet again on Thursday as the battle rages over plans to allow homes to be built in Green Belt on the western edge of Windsor.

The row has been raging ever since the Royal Borough's proposed local plan first included the relaxation of Green Belt restrictions on open fields on either side of the A308 Maidenhead Road.

A public meeting called by Oakley Green and Fifield Residents Association will take place at 7.30pm Thursday at Saxons Barn in Dedworth Road

The proposed new Borough Plan was first announced in 2016 but after being considered by a Government inspector has had some changes made.

But it still proposes allowing building on the fields.

The plan is now undergoing another period of public consultation - running until December 15. But opposition is not expected to have abated from people living in the area.

Ann Taylor, who is on the committee of Oakley Green and Fifield Residents Association which has called this week's meeting said: "There are proposals to build 450 new dwellings plus a school, plus sports facilities and so on, on the green fields on the western edge of Windsor, on either side of the A308.

"If the proposals go ahead, they will have a devastating impact locally and on the wider area in many respects, including in terms of infrastructure, particularly on traffic movements, resulting in gridlock and air pollution. Traffic is already at a standstill at peak times at this location and many others on the A308."
